It’s Devil’s Night Bizarros! Time to play some pranks, set fire to shit, and hail Satan! You can even name your cat, dog, or kid, after a demon.
Speaking of animals, here are 6 animals who surely came from the depths of hell or were at least named after The Dark Lord.
1) Ayam Cemani (Gallus gallus domesticus)
This Indonesian chicken is the blackest animal in the world. Even its bones and meat are black!
2) Jacob Sheep (Ovis aries)
Baphomet incarnate, Jacob sheep can have 2-6 horns and are aggressive enough that they are used as guards in farms.
3) Satanic Leaf Gecko (Uroplatus phantasticus)
Found only in Madagascar, these geckos look a lot like dragons.
Aside from looking cool, they don’t really do anything demonic. They just use their cool tail which looks like a dead rotting leaf to lure prey.
The common and scientific names of this species refer to a local superstition: it is associated with a “wet” plopping sound, repeated twice, that may be heard in the nighttime in its habitat. Locals believe this bird to be a demonic entity that tears the eyes of sleeping people out, hence the sound. 
5) Anopheles Mosquito (Anopheles gambiae)
Why is a mosquito on this list? Because it’s the deadliest animal in the world. This little bugger spreads malaria which kills over 600,000 people a year!
6) Blackdevil fish (Melanocetus johnsonii)
These deepsea anglerfish are monstrous creatures.
“The female lurks in the dark, drawing in prey with her glowing lure, while the male attaches to her like a blood-sucking parasite. Females can swallow prey larger than their own bodies.”
Bonus: Old school documentary on Satan and demonic possession with Boyd Rice singing “Total War” in the intro! A classic!

As are vintage Halloween kids…
5 days until Halloween!
I can’t believe it’s almost Halloween already. And I still have so much spooky shit to show you!
6 days until Halloween!
Although there aren’t as many female serial killers as there are male, there’s still quite an extensive list of killer women. Typically, female killers murder lovers, kids, or work as nurses and off their patients in some twisted “angel of mercy” syndrome. Some just do it because they’re sadistic.
Here is a list of some murderous women of history. I had to throw in a couple “classics” as well as some deadly females you may have never heard of before.
